    What do you guys think of it? Personally, I dont like it. I think it's taking away from the college game as well as the NBA. I dont know how many NBA games ive seen where I see players that are no where near ready and some of them have been in the league more than a year. I like the college baseball rule. Let them have the ability to go pro straight from hs if they so choose, yes there will guys that go and flame out, just the way it is. However if they go to college, they have to stay 3 years before the NBA. If thats too many years, meet it in the middle at 2. Even the one more year will help alot. This Kentucky team was really good, they worked the one and done system, have no problem with it. They are dirty but I dont think its the rule, its who is coaching them. He has 2 vacated final 4's for a reason, I know, he wasnt aware of it lol. That said, Cal has done better job than anybody using the rule to the max so credit where its due. I dont think this was an all time great team like ive heard today. Teams in the late 80's early 90's had grown men playing for them, different animal. Unlv with LJ and Augmon would have killed these guys. LJ would have stole Davis lunch and made him feed it to him. Davis is a big time talent though, tremendous upside, has to get stronger. He was huge in the game not even scoring but there was a reason he didnt score. He got looks, I think he was having a hard time finishing through contact because of strength, that'll come though. Would be great to see how much his O could catch up before next year, youll only see it on the NBA hardwood. I think changing the rule would help both fronts and also give players the option to bypass college so we wont have to hear that crap anymore.

    I've said before that I like the baseball rule.

    Go straight to the pros out of high school or, if they choose college, stay for 3 years or until 21-years old.

    I concur, I hear agents are a big part of why it isnt happening. Hopefully, it will.

    How is Kentucky skirting the APR requirements. You can 't convince me that these kids are going to class the 2nd semester.

    Great question. And doesn't the APR factor in players who complete degree requirements? I'd love to see how many one-and-dones actually have diplomas.

    If a kid leaves for the pros it doesn't affect APR, at least in football it doesn't.

    Yep. A total joke. However, doesn't a kid have to be on track to graduate? I mean, full time for a year is 18 credit hours. I can't believe these guys take 18 credit hours.

    Completely agree with the baseball rule coming to basketball. Would help the NCAA too as they'd have more recognizable players returning every year, rather than the casual fan not knowing any of the best players until February.

    Three 1000 level classes a semester? That's easy enough even SEC kids could do it.
